Brown-Forman’s cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky has an impact on whiskies all over the world. The cooperage makes all of the barrels for Jack Daniel’s, Woodford Reserve, and Brown-Forman’s other whiskies…and of course, those barrels are later sent to distilleries in Scotland and around the world for aging whiskies. It’s also one of the few cooperages open for tours, and general manager Greg Roshkowski will give us a tour in this episode. In the news, the Christchurch earthquake and its connection to the whisky world, plenty of awards, and more new whiskies!
